About Builders
 Vulcan A. G. (Stettin & Hamburg), Hamburg
Founded as Vulcan Werft in Stettin in 1851.

In 1857 the shipyard was renamed Stettiner Maschinenbau AG Vulcan.

As Stettin became too small, a new shipyard was built in Hamburg between 1907 - 1909.

In 1911 renamed Vulcan-Werke Hamburg und Stettin Actiengesellschaft.

In 1928 the Hamburg company merged with other companies to Deschimag concern. The Stettin company was taken over by Howaldtswerke AG.
